The UK's top surfers have travelled throughout the UK during 2008 to events on the UK Pro Surf Tour and it looks set to be a tense title decider at Fistral, with just a few points standing between current tour leaders Sam Lamiroy and Animal rider Alan Stokes.

The 1 star event supported by Animal will consist of Men's Open, Women's Open and Pro Junior divisions with a prize purse of £2750.

Dave Reed, Director UK PSA comments, "It is great to have one of the UK's leading surf brands, Animal supporting the tour, sponsoring the concluding and deciding event. This year we have seen without doubt, one of the most exciting series of events and it is fitting that it will all be decided at the tour finale".

Steve Kitchin, Animal sponsorship manager added, "We are proud and excited to be involved with the Tour decider event and looking forward to working with the UK PSA in highlighting the talent and developing the quality of British surfing".

The weekend will also see the 2008 Surf Awards being held at the Esplanade Hotel at South Fistral on Sunday the 16th of November to celebrate this year's achievements in surfing and to officially crown the 2008 tour champion. Tickets for the Surf Awards are available now through the UKPST office.
